The Muirfield Association is pleased to announce that new, metal
mailbox numbers are now available to replace the old-style plastic numbers.
These new metal numbers will be much more rugged and longer-lasting than
the current plastic ones.
Along with the new numbers, Association staff will be re-painting the
mailbox systems and repairing any damaged or missing components on
the mailbox systems. While there is no charge for the new numbers and
painting, any repairs required will be done and charged to the property owner.
Missing caps will be replaced at a cost of $35, a replacement mailbox (with flag)
is $40, and other repair costs are dependent on the scope of the repairs needed.
An invoice will be mailed once the work is completed.
The Association does not replace mailbox flags. If a replacement flag is needed,
residents are welcome to purchase their own standard, red mailbox flag.
Decorative or specialty flags are not permitted. Examples of acceptable flags are:
The mailbox refreshment is being done by neighborhood
starting at the south end of Muirfield Village and
working north. This project will take approximately
three years. Timing will depend on many factors,
including weather and the necessity of other projects.
We cannot predict when staff will get to any given neighborhood.
Approximately one week before the mailbox refurbishment project comes to your neighborhood, the Association will place
a notice in your mail slot. Any plantings around the mailbox must be cleared away from the unit. The Association
will not be responsible for any damage to landscape materials interfering with the mailbox refurbishing.
If you are concerned about your plant materials, you may want to pull them away from the mailbox
post once the flyer is received.
If your mailbox requires repairs before the project comes to your neighborhood,
you may request mailbox repairs any time in the Members Area of the website.
If you have questions, please call the Muirfield Association office at 614-889-0922.
Garage and Yard Sale Signs
Summer is the perfect time for garage and yard sales!
Did you know that the Association office offers free yard
sale signs at the Association office? Residents may pick
up one sign with a stake any time before their sale.
Only one sign may be placed on the property. The sign must
be in the front yard in the buildable area of the lot.
Unauthorized signs are subject to removal. The Association
office encourages residents to utilize electronic media to
advertise upcoming sales.
As a courtesy to residents, the Muirfield Association is
passing on the following information from the City of
Dublin regarding yard and garage sales:
The City of Dublin requires a permit to hold a garage or yard sale.
Permits cost $5.00 each.
Permits are sold Monday-Friday between 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 5800 Shier Rings Road. Go to the main front desk or the Planning Department desk for assistance.
Green and white signs are sold for $1.00 each. (Residents should be aware that only Muirfield signs are permitted within Muirfield Village. The city’s signs may be used right outside of the Village.)
Residents may request up to 2 permits a year. Each permit is good for one sale lasting a maximum of 3 consecutive days.
Permits should be requested one week in advance.
Questions should be directed to the City of Dublin at 614-410-4600.
Residents should be aware that the city can levy a stiff fine ($102) to persons who
hold a sale without a permit; therefore, the Association strongly encourages residents to obtain a permit.
Trash and Yard Waste Collection
The office has received complaints regarding trash and yard waste being placed on
the curb well before collection days. This unsightly practice is not permitted in Muirfield Village.
As a reminder, trash and recycling containers should be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m.
Wednesday mornings. They cannot be put outside the previous evening. Containers must
be brought in the same day and must be stored in a concealed location.
Yard waste bags should be set out for collection Monday morning by 7:00 a.m. Yard
waste bags must be stored in a concealed location until that time.
Your neighbors appreciate your compliance with this policy!
Deer in Muirfield Village
We are fortunate to
live in a community where wildlife is present. Deer are frequently
seen around Muirfield Village and many homeowners love to see
deer up close.
However, as many homeowners are aware, deer can be troublesome
when they start foraging for food in gardens and yards. The
City of Dublin cautions residents against feeding deer or placing
salt blocks out for them. Feeding can cause higher populations in
an area, therefore causing an increase in disease and property damage.
It is best to let them find food naturally. With Muirfield’s abundance
of wooded areas, finding food should be no problem.
ODNR’s website also cautions people against feeding deer, stating:
You should be aware that your actions
may cause neighbors who experience damage to become upset with your feeding.
It can also change movement patterns of deer causing them to repeatedly
cross roads increasing the chance for a deer-vehicle accident. Finally,
not cleaning up spilled seed can attract other wildlife that can contribute
to damage. It also attracts small rodents. If you chose to artificially
feed deer, be a good neighbor to others who live around you and be
responsible in these situations. YOU SHOULD NEVER ATTEMPT TO HAND-FEED A DEER.
Residents should also be aware that deer should never
be approached. ODNR offers the following advice for deterring deer
from your property:
If a female deer (doe)
is behaving oddly in your yard, it is likely there is a fawn involved.
Does hide their fawns and only visit them a few times a day to
feed them. However, the mother is nearby and can be very
protective of their young. What should you do?
Do not approach a deer.
Keep dogs and children away from deer.
Make a lot of noise and use a water hose if necessary
to encourage the doe to move the fawn to a new location.
